HYDERABAD: In a major catch, sleuths of the Anti-Corruption Bureau on Friday unearthed disproportionate assets worth several crores, and by one estimate, around `100 crore, belonging to an assistant director in Drug Control Administration (DCA), Adilabad district.

The ACB officials arrested the accused M Vijay Gopal (51) and produced him before a local court. Even though the officials, who raided his residence, put the value of his disproportionate assets at `10 crore, sources said market value of the same could easily be around `100 crore and there are more ‘Benami’ properties yet to be probed.

Simultaneous searches were conducted at the residences of Vijay Gopal, his relatives and associates in Hyderabad and his office in Adilabad. During the raids, the officials found that Gopal has a residential building (G+3) at Chikkadpally, Hyderabad, a G+4 commercial complex (12,000 sq. ft) with a penthouse at Chaitanyapuri, Hyderabad, one G+3 residential building (4500 sqft) at Old Malakpet, one shop at Dilsukhnagar, another at Nallakunta and plots at Medipally and Shadnagar, agriculture land of eight acres at Velijerla,  10 acres at Shadnagar, two houses at Nallakunta and commercial space of 1600 sqft at Dilsukhnagar among others.
